Criteria that must be taken into consideration in determining an approval
Other matters relating to approvals
The fee for any application that is withdrawn or returned in writing because it is unclear or illegible will be refunded. If the application is withdrawn before the assessment has begun, 80% of the fee will be refunded. In determining an application, Council staff may elect to change any of the criteria referred to in this policy on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the merit of individual circumstances and the purpose of the policy and legislation.
Once determined, a notice will be issued stating whether the application has been rejected, approved or approved with conditions. The approval period will vary depending on the type of activity or work. If the work has not started or the activity has not taken place within the specified time, the approval may lapse.
For any cause which arose after the approval was granted and which, if it had arisen before the approval was given, would have caused the Council not to have granted the approval (or not to have granted it under the same conditions);. For failure to comply with a requirement set by or pursuant to the law with regard to the subject of the approval;
Ensure that placing containers on public land does not cause damage to Council assets. State Arterial Road controlled by the Maritime Service (RMS) or a sub-arterial road controlled by the Council (see Appendix 1); and . h) the container is not used for perishable or dangerous waste; and . i) the container supplier has, as a minimum, Public Liability Insurance. The recipient of the container is responsible for keeping the area around the container clean and tidy at all times.
The container renter is responsible for the costs of repairs to municipal property that may be damaged during the placement and removal of the container. The municipality may at any time order the removal of the waste storage container if such a container, or the associated activity, is deemed to cause nuisance or danger to the public. be accompanied by a scaled plan showing the proposed location of the waste container;
Accompany details of the waste storage container, including dimensions, volume, supplier name and 24-hour telephone number. be accompanied by plans and specifications showing the design, type and location of any structure(s) used to prevent public access to the waste storage container and the type, design and location of any proposed signs, warning lights or other safety equipment;.
Installation of a sewage management facility
Under section 68 of the Act, approval is required to install a gray water diversion device for domestic use under clause 10 of Part F (an activity prescribed in the regulations). Accompanied by full specifications for the sewage treatment plant proposed to be installed or constructed on the premises concerned. The guideline does not apply to the recycling of domestic waste water from a single dwelling, where the waste water that arises in the property is used within the boundaries of the same property.
Septic tanks must be sized to accommodate not less than 24 hours of design flow plus 3 years of sludge accumulation. If a pump-out system is approved, the sump shall be designed to retain eight (8) days of the daily flow rate. The ability of the wastewater to infiltrate the soil determines the size of the disposal area.
The least permeable soil layer is the limiting factor and is used in the design of the disposal area. The waste water discharge area must be located outside the buffer distances shown in Table 3. To allow for possible future expansion or replacement of the wastewater disposal area, a reserve area capable of disposing of 100% of the wastewater from the facility is required.
The perimeter of the amended mound of earth should have a trench or bed around the perimeter. The channel/bed design is to use the design loading rate for the treated secondary effluent. Waste disposal areas must be separated from children's play areas by a buffer distance of six meters if the area is uphill and three meters if the area is downhill from the children's play area.
Where possible, the effluent disposal area should be located downstream of the children's play area. Amended earth mounds require that a recognized method of effluent disposal be included as part of the design. Knowing that the stack provides a level of wastewater treatment, secondary treated effluent levels can be used for the design rate of loading of the disposal area.
Wastewater areas must be separated from playgrounds via a buffer distance of 6 meters if the area is uphill and 3 meters if the area is downhill from the children's playground. The waste water disposal area must be located downhill from the children's playground where possible.

Determining soil texture
Form back into a ball and use your thumb to try to polish the surface - what is the general feel of the soil. Develop a high standard for the installation of solid or fuel oil heaters and ensure compliance with Building Code of Australia standards to protect homes from the risks associated with the use of heaters;. Approval under section 68 of the Act is not required if the facility is approved as part of a development application under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
Be accompanied by a site plan, drawn to scale, showing the proposed location of the proposed equipment and an elevation plan showing the height of the proposed flue in relation to the roof line of the dwelling and the nearest neighboring property. The plans will be used for notification to the neighboring premises and therefore should not include the interior layout of the apartment. In ground area dwellings, the height of the flue or chimney must comply with the Environmental Protection Authority document "Selection, installation and operation of domestic solid fuel heaters".
The minimum discharge height of the chimney (chimney) must be 1 meter above any structure within a horizontal radius of 15 meters. Ensuring mobile food vending vehicles operate in accordance with rules and restrictions within legal parking areas on council owned roads; Ensure that commerce from mobile vending machines or temporary food stands is complementary to and not unreasonably disadvantaged with approved commercial centers (malls, self-contained cafes, restaurants and the like);
Specify criteria for individuals to apply to the Council for approval to operate a mobile food vending machine or temporary food stand on public or municipal property. Temporary food stalls A structure that can be designed, built and/or erected for a temporary food preparation and sale event. The food business has notified the appropriate enforcement body of the operation of the business, in accordance with section 100 of the Food Act 2003; And.
In the case of a mobile food vehicle, it complies with the NSW Food Authority's Guideline for Mobile Food Vending Vehicles (September 2015); and. Description of the method of operation including the vehicle or stall and method of minimizing any impact on the immediate area in terms of pedestrian or vehicular traffic and parking. Applications will be served on any business or organization outside of which the temporary food stand is proposed to be located and to any tenant of a park, sports ground or other location where the temporary food stand is proposed to be located.
A notice period of 10 working days will be provided and submissions will be considered as part of the assessment. Any potential amenity impacts (such as but not limited to wind, noise, light emissions) that the proposed activity may cause. h) Delivery of any business or organization outside of which the temporary food stall will be located. i) Surrender to any tenant of the park, sports field or other location in which the temporary food stall is to be located. j) Agreements for the prevention of pollution and the provision of waste containers for customers and operators.
